Grammy nominated platinum recording artist and Broadway star, Jordin Sparks, is unveiling her first ever fragrance line with the fruity floriental scent titled, "Because of You"- thoughtfully named by Sparks to pay tribute to her fans that have helped her to achieve her dreams. Sparks was driven by the arts from a young age but no one could have imagined just how fast ambition would rev into realization by the time the singer reached her mid-teens.

Distinct, innovative, elegant, and subtle, this fragrance offers a long lasting sensuality. It celebrates the renaissance of extreme femininity and power of spontaneous emotion. This fragrance is a unique combination of luxury, art, and modernity for timeless elegance.

The fruity floriental Because of You, concocted by Belmay Fragrances, has top notes of clementine, white imperial currant and orange blossom; a heart of nectarine, sharry baby orchid and coral charm peony, and a drydown of sheer musks, vanilla bean, Baltic amber and blond woods. Because Of You was launched in 2010.

Because Of You Fragrance Reviews

Because Of You smells very good! To me it smells like citrus-tinged vanilla sugar and the sweetness is so right. It's compared to can can, but it smells way better. Can can has this sickly sweet smell to me that upsets my nose, but B.o.y has this softness to it. It's a strong like right now that probably will turn to love. Jordin's fragrance debut was good!

Blind bought this for $6.99. It smells nice and sweet but also clean. It is nothing groundbreaking but I like it. I get orange and vanilla and amber. It lasts pretty well, but not great. Still worth the money, can be the perfume I wear when I don't want to use up the more expensive ones.

This is a sweet, pretty, long-lasting scent that I can see as being suitable for any ages, as long as you like sweet, cozy, and linear. I don't get anything tropical (as mentioned in other reviews)---I get amber and vanilla (lots of it), some peony and orchid, and a bit of musk and woods in the drydown. I sprayed 4 sprays this morning (7.5 hours ago) and I can still faintly smell it on my skin. Not bad for a $5 perfume found at TJ's and Ross! The floral doesn't come through very heavily, so you have to really like sweet amber and vanilla to enjoy this, I think. It's not overly unique, but it is pretty. Still not sure if I'm going to keep it, but I do like it. Go figure! :)

For $10 with free shipping for the 2.5 oz, I had to try this. I'm a gourmand/sweet/candy/fruit fan.
I do agree this has a Can Can vibe but it's lighter, fruitier, juicier, and more tropical. Also-- does not nearly last as long.
The first 5 minutes are mouth watering... if this was the smell of an alcoholic drink-- I'd be wasted because it's delicious!
A very tropical fruity candy blast. And then nothing. Oh well.
My $10 bottle used Priority shipping in the US, so it got here fast, and after shipping and ebay fees, the seller probably got $3 for it. Not too shabby for me!
Can Can is more potent, has a powder element, and is more "mature" I guess... haha.
It is generic, but since I own 100+ perfumes.... some of them all smell the same.... haha.
I will wear whatever perfume smells good to me, regardless of who made it. I have no hate for celeb scents.

So I have been eyeing this perfume forever now and after seeing it countless times at Tjmaxx...so the other day I saw it and it was the last one!! So yeah for $6.99 I couldn't pass it up this time.

This kinda reminds me of Viva La Juicy & Nicole Polizzi Snooki perfume,it would be like their little sister lol but can hold its own...plus the bottle is elegant & cute.

Its a fruity citrus with hints of vanilla I like it a lot!! This one make a great spring/summer scent....the wear/longevity is moderate on me and the sillage is moderate after a few hours it fades but you can still smell it.

*The 1st time I wore this my husband complimented on how good I smelled & that he really liked it on me.

I don't think this perfume is just for teens or juvenile at all,I think anyone could wear this and I'm all for wearing what you like! (I'm 41)

if I ran out of this I'd get another bottle!

I find this fragrance to be extremely sweet. Blind bought a gift set at TJ max. Big mistake. It smells like pure sugar to me then disappears on my skin quickly!

If anyone wants to swap for this gift set, let me know

Soapy creamsicle.

This smells like straight up citrus and vanilla to me. The top notes of clementine and african orange flower and the base note of vanilla is what's a hard-hitter on first spray. Again, with most of these celebrity scents I don't really get a lot of woodsy notes in the dry drown. To me, I smelled like a lingering white floral and orange powerhouse throughout the whole wear of the fragrance. It doesn't last too long, about 2 hours, which is annoying. Luckily, I paid around two or three dollars for a rollerball. It's generic and the combo of clementine, vanilla, and white floral gives me a slight headache.

Longevity: 1.5-2 hours
Re-purchase: Hell no. DO NOT buy this for forty bucks on ebay. Please.

I've had this for about a year, but really never wear it. I decided to try it today, and it's actually not bad. For me, it's not a great dupe for Paris Hilton's Can Can. I love Can Can, and this is just way weaker, and not as sweet or noticeable, and has a much stronger vanilla scent. I don't even smell much similarity, and if I'd bought it in lieu of Can Can, I'd have been disappointed. To me, this is a much warmer scent than Can Can.

For me, this is a very light perfume, almost like a body spray. I like my perfumes to project a little more. The bottle is pretty, and I got it super cheap at Marshalls, so what's not to like? I might try layering this at some point. It smells similar to some other perfume, but I can't quite place what, and it's not Can Can. I'm sure it'll drive me crazy trying to figure out what it smells so similar to.

I'd like this a lot better if it were stronger. I also smelled her latest perfume, Ambition, while at Walmart, and it's pretty nice too. I'll probably end up with that one too.

Edit: It finally came to me that this has a note in it, or a certain warmth, that reminds me of Taylor by Taylor Swift, Jessica Simpson's Fancy Love, and Burberry London(all of which smell remarkably similar).

Found this at a local TJMaxx store, and thought to myself, "Hm, I don't have a Jordin Sparks perfume!" So I picked it up. Turns out, I really love this scent! It's been a while since I've worn it, but I still find it great.

This scent is a warm, sweet smell with lots of vanilla, but not too overbearing. Perfect for every time of the year! I would find this suitable to wear on casual work days, or out to dinner with some friends or with someone you like. It's just a very versatile scent, perfect for many different occasions!

I think this scent is great for just about anyone who likes sweet scents! Very classy and great smell.

I got this scent quite some time ago, and I must say that I do not wear it alot, compared to some other scents in my collection. I have quite a few perfumes, and this is not one that I often go to, and there is a reason for that. The reason for that is because it is a generally simple scent. There is nothing extremely unique about it, or something that screams out: "SMELL ME! I BRING ATTENTION TO THE ROOM!"

With that being said, I am in no way saying that this is a bad scent! It is a very light, unoffensive, sweet scent! Sometimes, this is just the type of way that I want to smell, and for that, that is why I enjoy Because Of You by Jordin Sparks! I am in school studying to be a dental hygienist, and we aren't supposed to wear perfume in our clinical courses, because they do not want our smell to offend any of our peers, teachers and most importantly our patients. This scent is PERFECT for that! I can wear this scent, and my instructors do not notice a thing! In fact, I have even gotten a few compliments on it!

Jordin Sparks is not the biggest start in the world, she was on a singing competition, and has been in a few movies. She is currently dating Jason Derulo, another guy who isn't the biggest star in the world either. With that being said, the promotion for this perfume was not big, and this perfume is not a very well known scent. That is also the reason why it is so darn cheap in the stores! I absolutely love it for that reason! I bought my 75ml bottle of eau de parfum for $7.99 at my local TJMaxx! That is a GOOD DEAL! They also have gift sets that include body lotion and roller balls for $10 - $15 at my local TJMaxx/Marshalls as well! I know that this perfume will be around in my stores for a long time, so I have no worries that if I ever want to re-purchase it, I shouldn't have a problem!

The last thing that I would like to talk about is it's comparisons to another scent. I bought Because Of You about 6 months ago. I recently bought another scent by Paris Hilton called "Can Can" that I had no idea was going to smell similar to Because Of You. I like Can Can by Paris Hilton! For me, it's almost like a sweeter version of Because Of You. From what I have read, they have some similar notes. I do not think they smell exactly the same, and that is why I am happy to own both of them. There are some days where I have a sweet tooth for my perfume, and that is when I will grab for Can Can, and there are some days where I want a lighter scent, and that is when I will wear Because Of you.


I enjoy Because Of You by Jordin Sparks for a multitude of reasons. Is it my favorite fragrance? No, it is honestly towards the bottom of my favorites in my entire collection. BUT that does not mean that I do not like it. It's a great scent for when you want to be unoffensive, but still want to smell nice!

I definitely would recommend Because Of You by Jordin Sparks!

I got a huge gift set for $10. Can't beat that. Because of You is a nice safe fruity vanilla. Not really exciting ,casual and easy to wear. I think the sillage and longevity are good too.

Not an inspired or knock your socks off. Yet every single time I wear it , I get compliments. Without fail.

This review, like one below, is also for "FASCINATE" which is not catalogued.

The fragrance was released in 2012. It comes packaged in a nice clear bottle that has a blue tint to it and a gold charm hanging from it. I am not a fan of celebrity perfumes due to the poor quality of the majority of them on the market today, however I saw this little gem on sale at TJ Maxx for $8 for a 2.4 ounce. It is not a scent I would normally wear but I decided to experiment and worse case scenario I can use it as a car perfume. It was a first foray into this genre for me.

I searched the Internet far and wide for any information on this scent but could find zero notes listed anywhere. It appears Ms. Sparks team have utterly failed her in marketing this scent. Though it was a limited release for a specific inexpensive chain store I would have expected a mention of it on her website. If I had to guess- I would say this scent is a lovely little floral-aquatic. I normally loathe gardenia in a perfume... To often it turns into the scent of pickles on the wrong skin. But the gardenia in this is muted and softened more by the sweet jasmine lingering throughout. These notes as well as other indescernable ones float on a tranquil sea of white tea. The longeivity is pretty fantastic for such a cheap fragrance. It stays on my skin for 6 hours or so which is a feat. I honestly enjoy this fragrance a good bit. It is a steal for the price and is great for daytime wear. I can see myself buying this again to wear to very casual events where my normal oriental perfumes would be unwelcome.

A strong sweet floral that also has a touch of a sour note. Not sure that I like it. I really smell the orchid and amber, a touch of vanilla and musk. I think it may be the citrus that is making it sour.

Throw was good for the first half hour then went to a skin level. Scent was gone at 2 hrs.

I dont know why they have this as an oriental as it isnt one at all on me.

I have tried this twice now, in summer and in winter. Other than being stronger in the winter the scent didnt change.

Facination, in the blue bottle, is like jasmine tea. It's harsh at first, but dries down ok.

For the price of $7 I could not resist the blind buy. This little number would be great for a young girl entering middle school or high school. It's light and simple and young without being overbearing. For the price I think it's great. I am middle aged yet i'd still consider spraying this on after a bath or shower before bed. It's more of a body spray then a perfume that's why I suggest a great option for the younger crowds - nice light and very feminine.

This perfume is not that bad. It is a creamy, soft vanilla scent. It is just fun and casual to wear and I got it at TJ Maxx for $7 which was a good deal. It is not a serious scent but just fun and girly to wear. I definitely recommend it if you're looking for an affordable perfume. ;)

Update:
I can't tell you how many times a day I have to spray this on me to smell it! It fades away too fast but it smells delicious!LOL

Bought from TJ maxx because it was so cheap and I was curious... And this is how my experience was:

First spray, 3-5 min: wow, this is really sweet, but I actually kind of like it! Lots of vanilla and amber, very sweet, candy-like - it's a really good thing smells can't contain calories... Surprised that I am actually enjoying a fragrance that could rot teeth in no time at all

6-10 min: oh okay... Now those reviews about how sickly sweet this frag can get are totally making sense... I am not enjoying this stage at all

10-20 min: I might have to go wash this off... Sugar overload, and I am starting to get a headache

After about 45 min: whew!! It is a good thing this frag has no lasting power on my skin!!

This had to be one of the most unsuccessful blind buys I have ever had. I don't love everything I buy, but I rarely have such a strong negative reaction to a fragrance that initially started out pretty good. If anything It usually starts sketchy and gets better. This fragrance is a fail on almost all accounts... Jordin's Ambition frag is much better.

If anyone wants this I would gladly part with it.

I got this for $1.50 at Big Lots----an EDP rollerball and small body lotion!
I am not sure why a couple of reviewers said Because of You smells like Fantasy---there is no white chocolate in Jordin Spark's frag, and it is not a gourmand, really. Vanilla notes don't make a gourmand!

Mostly I get the orange/vanilla notes and the "boozy" quality mentioned by another reviewer. At first I did not think this scent would be long-lasting, but now it's six hours later and I still smell lovely, plus there is a decent sillage, barely moderate, but for the price I can't complain.

The body lotion is pretty good quality, with long-lasting moisture, plus it is well scented.
Update: I ended up buying so many bottles of this that I shared some with an elderly friend, who LOVES it!

Couldn't pass this up at TJ Maxx for $3.99 and gave it to my 13 year old daughter, who loved it. I think I could've worn it too, as a pleasant, non-offensive sweet vanilla, but I really like it on her.

For me, Because of You is just okay. I don't hate it, but I don't really like it either. I wanted to try it because of the comparison to Can Can which I sampled on my birthday,and fell in love with. Like so many other users, I got this fragrance cheap. $4 for an 8ml travel size and matching lotion. I have to say the quality of Because of You is just that CHEAP. Definitely not the worst I've tried, but after testing a few times, I've found that this is one I won't use, and I'd like to pass it on.

Update: I've decided to keep my Because of You set. The perfume isn't one that I find myself eager to reach for, but I've used quite a bit of the lotion. I wouldn't say that either are wonderful quality, but in my opinion the lotion is a little bit nicer than the perfume.

just for the record magnetism has a clean green basil note which this does not have...fresh and aromatic along with the syrupy, warm juiciness. i find it hard to believe that this has any resemblance at all to my beloved escada as the notes (and quality)are so different...just sayin'. not to diminish celebrity scents but escada this is NOT by any stretch of the imagination...it lacks the complexity of a true designer fragrance with it's many facets and i'm almost offended by the comparison. magnetism is a beauty full of changes and wonder...no such thing as linear when it comes to this power house of 'fumery. pleases don't think this is magnetism in disguise...please

Extremely disappointed with this perfume. It was a blind buy at Marshalls for about $8.00. As soon as I opened the box, the cap was chipped and there was a crack in the glass. When I sprayed it on, I got a whiff of oranges and a little vanilla and that was it. No amber or sandalwood and no floral scents at all. The scent also almost disappears as soon as it hits my skin. I think the bottle is gorgeous and feminine but the outcome of this perfume really let me down. Not sure if this is Marshalls fault, if the perfume was just old, or if this is what it's supposed to actually smell the way it did.

like all the previous reviewer mentioned, this perfume smells quite similar to Paris Hilton's Can Can, Swift's Wonderstruck, and Britney's Fantasy. I personally like this more than Can Can. It seems to have a little more depth to it. Both has strong plastic synthetic smell. After 30 minutes Jordan Spark's sweetness sets in. I find this sweetness more tolerable than Can Can. It has that candy caramel scent like many fragrances on the market today ranging from Fantasy, Viva La juicy, wonderstruck, Pink Sugar, etc. I don't love this fragrant and I don't hate it either. I saw it at an outlet at a steep reduced price and was tempted to buy it. I was afraid that it'll end up collecting dust on my shelf because of the possible cloying headache I might get from it. For the price, I think it's a steal for less than $10 for 2.5 oz. Maybe I can use it to layer with a lighter fruity body spray scent from VS to give it extra dimensions. Overall, it's a sweet alluring pretty fragrant. I only wish the synthetic smell wouldn't linger so long.

Just picked this up at Mar$halls for cheap. I am a sucker for a good deal, so I bought it blind. Well, what do you know, I was disappointed. I should have known. I don't really get vanilla or amber. I get citrusy, cheap candy smell. It smells very cheap and artificial and to be honest I'm getting a headache. There is a harsh, chemical note that stings the nose, even after 30 minutes when most scents are starting to soften. I don't know what Jordin was thinking, but this is truly an awful scent and I'm not sure why anyone would want to smell like this. No offense to anyone who likes it!

If anyone wants to swap it, let me know!

Second review.

I love this perfume. I can't stop wearing it. It's sweet but not candy like. It's fruity but not over done. It lasts all day but it isn't loud and overbearing. It is just lovely!

I think it is less young than many celebrity scents. Older women can wear it without feeling silly.

I barely know who Jordin Sparks is. But I love this perfume. If I had paid 3 times as much it would have been a good deal.

My friends girlfriend has this fragrance but she uses it like a air frashener in her room. I think this is the smell of a girl that's suppose to be a pretty, young, fun and very girly. I haven't smelled many girl fragrances but I really like this one. Only bad thing I herd some one say its tacky and screams for attention and you really want to get noticed. I still like the fragrance.

I got the gift set for $9.99... not bad . I love it. I know it says citrus , but the opening is apple to me. That is okay but not remarkable. Whay I love is the powdery, peony and vanilla in the dry down. That wone me. It is sweet and feminine and just pretty too. I don't care who it is by, if I like it I will proudly wear it. I am thrilled with this blind buy!

I actually like this alot. It is very sweet and yummy; I can smell the vanilla. It's very similar to Can Can as I have that one too. If you like sweetness, like in the line of Pink Sugar, you may like this one too. The value of this perfume is very good. It actually lasts on me quite a while.

i bought this today at Ross but i will be gifting this to my 21 year old sister who will probably make it smell the way it should and not like:

plastic, fruity, baby powder...

the way it dried down on me. i saw that this perfume was compared to Can Can by Paris Hilton, which i havent tested yet AND Magnetism by Escada. i actually bought Because of You because of that comparison that was made in a review here, but i find that Bacause of You and Magnetism are worlds apart. i own a bottle of Magnetism and it is luxurious, complex, and doesnt smell cheap.

my youngest sister always makes perfumes that smell so juvenile on me smell SO GOOD! so off with jordin sparks into her hands. P.S. the bottle looks cheap in the sunlight, but more like the picture in dimmer lighting. just saying ;-) Happy Hunting!

this was a impulse buy for me-I smelled it at Sears, loved it and next thing I knew I was in a checkout line paying for it. After I tried it again at home, I was kind of dissapointed because I realized that it was almost a dead ringer for Escada Magnetism(which I already had)or as another reviewer said, Paris Hilton's Can Can. I think the best way to describe all three fragrances is citrus vanilla with a hint of powder. Its fruity, sweet vanilla goodness. I like all three fragrances but its nothing new or different. Also, out of all three, Jordin Sparks scent has the poorest lasting power of all which I can't stand. It could have been called body spray and noone would know the difference. Nice fragrance but I won't repurchase due to terrible lasting power and the scent itself which is not very unique

I bought this and thought I liked it. However, as I kept using it I'd get an immediate headache. This scent is way too sweet and way too strong. I'd even call it cloying. This scent gives me horrible headaches and is nauseating.

I can really smell the amber in this fragrance. The opening is a bit sweet but evolves into a more floral scent though it's hard for me to pick out the different flowers because the amber is so dominant. I really like that it is woodsy with vanilla (along with the amber). In the bottle it is too strong and sweet but that isn't how it is on my skin. It really lasts on me and works so much better with my skin than I anticipated. I got this with an extreme discount and if I run out I wouldn't mind spending full price because it is so inexpensive but smells so well on me.

A tribute to fans, how nice is THAT? and what a lovely perfume this is. I got this after Christmas and it was very cheap for a large bottle, I had no choice but to grab it, I mean, it's not a deal if ya don't buy it, RIGHT? This is very sweet but has a depth, oh she's a DEEP one...and loud, but not for long. It ends up being a very nice girly fragrance for young and old alike. The bottle is quite pretty. I think the longevity is longer than what one thinks, you just lose the scent on yourself after a short while, so I think it's average. This is a nice one to have if you like sweet scents. There's a smoky note in this that brings this right up to an adult level. I'm sure the younger crowd will go for this more than someone my age, but I'm stickin' to my guns, this is a NICE scent!

Boy, I'm a little sheepishly admitting this, but I liked it. My only complaint is is staying power. It doesn't have a lot of depth, but it was very nice on me. Not too sweet, not too fruity. Granted it may not be the most complex scent out there, but for the price, it's a steal. I don't mind replenishing often on this one. I really enjoyed the initial spray. Not enough left on a drydown to notice it though, hence the frequent re-spraying. Will I buy again, probably not. Will I enjoy using up what I have, most definitely.

Like others have said this smells like a cheaper version of Can Can.Its nothing special as it smells watered down.But, the lasting power is actually decent.Kudos to her for coming up with an affordable fragrance.I wouldn't recommend it as just smells cheap.Save up and buy Can Can instead.That being said the lotion is wonderful its very rich and moisturizing.

I don't own this perfume, but I have tested it.

Because Of You smells very generic. I could name about three different perfumes it smells identical to. It basically smells like vanilla with a hint of florals. Nothing special, just your basic, run of the mill perfume.

The upside of Because Of You is it is very inexpensive. You can purchase a rollerball and small lotion at Cato's and Sears for around $5-$8, and the full size bottle is about $20.

If you like vanilla, this fragrance is for you. The lasting power is ok, but I just find it so boring no one really notices it.

I REALLY like this one. It does smell similar to Paris Hilton Can Can and even a bit like Flowerbomb. My fiance thinks its too sweet and hopes that it dries down where he's not blasted with so much cotton candy, but one of my favorite notes in a scent is cotton candy, so I'm in heaven with this. I like this one a lot

This smells good....very fruity! To me it smells like it has a boat load of pineapple in it although I did not see pineapple listed as one of the notes. A tropical drink comes to mind here! It seems like a really good scent for the younger crowd I think. The lasting power on me was only an hour and a half which was kind of a downer.

I really like this one, it kind of reminds me of Paris Hilton Can Can minus the candy sweetness. There are a lot of similarities in the notes if you compare them...Can Can has clementine, orchid, amber, musk and woodsy notes...so does Jordin Sparks. The orange flower and clementine are prominent on my skin in this one. For a fraction of the cost you can get a similar comparison to Can Can....IMO great price and great scent, only downfall is that it doesnt have the best lasting power. But I can't complain too much for the price. Two thumbs up anyway!
